According to the Canadian Press, Chris Butler scored with four seconds remaining in overtime as the Calgary Flames defeated the Carolina Hurricanes 2-1 on Thursday evening at the Scotiabank Saddledome.

Butler delivered a shot from the point for his second goal of the season and his first overtime winner of his career.

Despite the game winning goal for Butler, the 2013-14 National Hockey League regular season has been a struggle for him because he is a team worst -15.

The Flames also got great goaltending from Karri Ramo, who made 29 saves, including a save on a penalty shot from Hurricanes' sniper Jeff Skinner, who has been red hot as of late.

The Flames recorded the victory in their first game that Brian Burke was their acting general manager. Earlier on Thursday, the Flames fired general manager Jay Feaster.

With the win, the Flames improved to 12-15-4 and are 13 points back of the Minnesota Wild for the eighth and final playoff position in the Western Conference. Calgary next plays in Buffalo on Saturday.
